She is undergoing Dialysis twice a week and it's been around one month already. What are the possibilities of getting better or recovery. How can one recover from such stage without going under Kidney Transplant. Doctors has suggested not to go under Transplant.
Please suggest., Your suggestions will be highly appreciated.
Most likely your mom will not recover her kidney function unless she suffered from acute renal failure (in a short time/overnight sort of speak) due to meds.
When a patient sufferes from Chronic kidney damage (happens slowly through the yrs), there's no going back.
Dialysis is a treatment option which will help your mom stay alive and relatively well.
May I ask why doctors are advising against kidney transplant?? is it due to another illness? 61 is very young and with a transplant she can live very well, provided there's no other illness involved.
For now, tell her how important it is to no skip any dialysis treatments. To follow drs order as far as meds, diet and fluid restrictions are concern and she will do great.
I know it's scary to have your Mom on dialysis. When they placed my Mom on, I think we all thought it was the kiss of death. I've learned alot since then. People can live for years on dialysis and have fairly normal lives. We also thought my Mom's kidneys would "come back" after meds to keep her alive caused her to go on dialysis, but they haven't. My Mom is alot older than your Mom (she's 72) and not a candidate for transplant because of her general health as well as her age, but I would check into it if it is an option.
